President George W. Bush Finally Defends his 8 Years and Does not Directly Criticize Obama


GWB gets the quote of the day …

“Therapy isn’t going to cause terrorists to change their mind.”

After having the current Administration continually blame the last 8 years of Bush for all the ills of society, Bush finally defends himself. From the economy to GITMO, GWB lays down the reality of what it means to be President, rather than the rhetoric of campaigning for President or blaming others while in office.

George W. Bush reminds all of us, that the buck stops with the President. There are tough decisions that need to be made. He also reminds America that we are a capitalist society, not a socialist one. Oh, and by the way, there is a war on terrorism.

“I know it’s going to be the private sector that leads this country out of the current economic times we’re in,” the former president said to applause from members of a local business group. “You can spend your money better than the government can spend your money.”

“Government does not create wealth. The major role for the government is to create an environment where people take risks to expand the job rate in the United States,” he said to huge cheers. 

“I told you I’m not going to criticize my successor,” he said. “I’ll just tell you that there are people at Gitmo that will kill American people at a drop of a hat and I don’t believe that persuasion isn’t going to work. Therapy isn’t going to cause terrorists to change their mind.”

      Thank you Mr. Bush for being the class act that you are and thanks for keeping us safe and for doing what you thought was best for our country aside from the fact that you have been criticized from day one and though you didn’t always make the right decisions, you did have OUR best interest in mind. There are many who will always blame you for everything that is wrong with our country but there are just as many that know the truth and will never forget.

      Finally some sensibility in the air.

    3. buster on June 18th, 2009 2:34 pm

      Hey George I thought I made a mistake once but I was wrong.

    4. SUPER DAVE on June 18th, 2009 3:59 pm

      Bush looks like an angel compared to what obama is trying to pull on the real citizens of this country.

    5. Elle on June 18th, 2009 4:22 pm

      I want Bush back……right now according to Bloomberg, Defense Secretary Robert Gates has ordered US Military to take defensive measures should North Korea try to fire a ballistic missile at Hawaii over the 4th of July holiday…..Gates has directed the deployment of a missile interceptor system known as Theater High Altitude Based Area Defense or THAAD, to Hawaii and the positioning of a sea based radar system near the US State.

      HMMMMMM~ North Korea wouldn’t be pulling this crap under Bush or Reagan, but when the prez is a p@**Y this is what we get!


    6. Jack Hammer on June 18th, 2009 4:39 pm

      You guys actually like that doofus Bush. What a tool. Now Obama, that is a real man.

    7. yoyo muffintop on June 18th, 2009 5:57 pm

      “Thanks for keeping us safe” – hahahahaha

      Did ya’ll forget about 9/11?

      Did ya’ll forget about the 5000+ Americans killed in Iraq and that Bin Laden thanked Bush for sending Americans over there because it made it easier to kill Americans that way?

      But, hey, the financial genius Bush has spoken…

      “I know it’s going to be the private sector that leads this country out of the current economic times we’re in. You can spend your money better than the government can spend your money. Government does not create wealth. The major role for the government is to create an environment where people take risks to expand the job rate in the United States.”
      …….says the man that presided over this country while we slipped into financial ruin.
      can I get a job rewriting history?

      Bush just needs to stay in Texas and focus on his core competencies: wood choppin’, hay bailin’ & bush clearin’.

      Oh, and as far as “therapy” goes, Bush should know – he was the one that sent Gitmo detainee’s to Saudi Arabia to receive therapy. Lol.

      Now where can I get that job at a job rewriting history?

    8. nurturer on June 18th, 2009 8:56 pm

      As time goes on, as the ‘real man’ is revealed, the return of someone like George Bush is going to be needed more and more.

    9. barbreee on June 18th, 2009 10:33 pm

      Can’t say I am thrilled at the apologetic tone Obama sent out in his trips overseas. George Bush had the fortitude to stay a steady, unpopular course. I felt safer, now, I’m worried. What signal would it have sent to waver? Terrorists are bullies. You don’t back down and apologize, they will kick your ass. No, they will take the cowards approach. I think Obama is getting a crash course in man’s inhumanity to man. It will never go away. I feel the people in Iran are calling out to the US to help them, but it looks like they are helping themselves. That’s the spirit! PS, Obama, it doesn’t look good to have your feet up on the desk while in the oval office.

    10. Dolf on June 19th, 2009 1:57 am


      no such luck, North Korea pulled the same sh*t under Bush and Clinton and Bush and Reagan

    11. Dolf on June 19th, 2009 4:39 am

      btw. I missed the news on senator John Ensign.

      or is it to painfull for the repblicans?
      SM: We will use the line the Dems used with Bill Clinton, isn’t this about his personal life.

    12. ANewGirl on June 19th, 2009 6:12 am

      #6- JACKASS—the only Tool here is you! GWB a dufus? Listen,–you can continue to blame everything on former President Bush. No one on this Website is going to say he was perfect. Where is your respect ?? GET A CLUE—it is the OBAMASSIAH who is going to end up sending us all down the river without a paddle, if you catch my drift!! PAY ATTENTION to GWB’s words, you IDIOT. What is Obama going to do next? Whip out the peace pipe and the love beads? ARE YOU SERIOUS? You know nothing about Foriegn Affairs and obviously, even less about Terrorisim… Tell me—WHAT IS OBAMA GOING TO DO TO PROTECT YOU, ME AND OUR FAMILIES??

      WHAT HE IS GOING TO DO, JACK?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

      Jack is a good name for you, because —IMO—you don’t KNOW JACK and neither does your boy BARRACK HUSSIEN OBAMA!

    13. Dolf on June 19th, 2009 7:34 am

      wasn’t Ensign the guy grilling Clinton about it?

      thats why i don’t like the moral knights like him, they all turn out to be false

    14. Dolf on June 19th, 2009 7:39 am

      and it may his personal life….but then he shouldn’t take the moral high ground and attack other ppl for what he has been doing (with the wife of a good friend)

      these ppl give a bad name, no matter which political side they are

    15. Dolf on June 19th, 2009 8:18 am

      @12: think the same what Bush did, tell the public servants to kick ass.

      and again, the terrorists don’t care about Obama, but perhaps his words got through to the ppl who THOUGHT the US is evil (lack of open media and education) might think a bit different.

    16. SUPER DAVE on June 19th, 2009 8:51 am

      n. korea knows we have a weak president that would rather run than fight and they plan on seeing how far he will run. or will he join them ?

    17. Bankie on June 19th, 2009 9:09 am

      I love this website. It reminds me of why so many people dislike Americans.

      Dumb and damn proud of it. Aye, aye mama!

      #12 – Dear ANewgirl

      I am a sailor in the US Coast Guard. My parents live in the suburb of Philadelphia and one of my sisters, who lives in Bensenville, is married to a transvestite. My father and mother have ecently been arrested for growing and selling marijuana and are currently dependent on my other
      two sisters, who are prostitutes in Jersey City. I have two brothers, one who is currently serving a non-parole life sentence in Attica for armed robbery. The other brother is currently being
      held in the Wellington Remand Center on charges of incest with his three children. I have recently become engaged to marry a former Thai prostitute who lives in the Bronx and indeed is still a part-time “working girl” in a brothel. However her time there is limited, as we hope to open our own brothel with her as the working manager. I am hoping my two sisters would
      be interested in joining our team. Although I would prefer them not to get into this line of work, at least it would get them off the street,
      and hopefully off the juice…

      ANewgirl, my problem is this: I love my fiance and look forward to bringing her into the family and of course I want to be totally honest with her… Should I tell her about my cousin who voted
      for Bush?

      Worried about my reputation

    19. Dolf on June 19th, 2009 9:21 am

      Dave, no US president was able to do something about North Korea (except maybe Eisenhower).

    20. Rusty Bridges on June 19th, 2009 9:53 am

      #19, Bush made a promise to open up a can of whoop-ass on NK if they didn’t keep the peace. ‘lil kim jong believed he would do it given the fact that we were killing hundreds of terrorists a week in two countries we invaded.

      Remember the “Axis of Evil” label that GWB put on NK that all the child like lefties giggled at. Worked a lot better than the peace love and understanding bs we are seeing now.

    21. Rusty Bridges on June 19th, 2009 9:58 am

      #18, those are exactly the type of people that would be ashamed of Pres. Bush, and quite proud of Obama.

      Ask a military family that understands what the fight is about and you will get one negative response, from Cindy Sheehan.

    22. Michelle Smith on June 19th, 2009 10:06 am

      What’s with all the trolls?

    23. Elle on June 19th, 2009 11:36 am

      So true, a pansy @ss no doubt…..but I LMAO when I read Gates was sending the US John McCain to Hawaii……..that’s the irony of all ironies.
      I guess Obamassiah HOPED he could CHANGE NK’s mind’s by being a pathetic apologist. I’m ashamed to call him prez.

      SUPER DAVE on June 19th, 2009 8:51 am
      n. korea knows we have a weak president that would rather run than fight and they plan on seeing how far he will run. or will he join them ?

    24. Jack Hammer on June 19th, 2009 1:45 pm

      What’s with the Trolls???? No kidding, there is a troll that runs this website and and quite a few trolls that follow it like the bible. Hey NewGirl, you say Where is my respect? And afterwards continue to bash the President. Where the hell is your respect? You are pathetic. If Obama sat down to pee you guys would write an article and comment like crazy about it. Complete BS.

    25. yoyo muffintop on June 19th, 2009 2:16 pm

      #20 – revisionist history again?

      In Jan 2002 Bush busted out the “axis of evil” line. Sounded good huh? Guess what, NK was a bit unhappy and a couple of months later the Yongbyon reactor came on-line and started making weapons-grade plutonium.

      Then in March 2002, Bush “the decider” decided NK was sooooooooo evil, he started selling them fuel oil…which fueled the Yongbyon reactor.

      Then in Oct 2002, the “decider” realized NK was using the fuel to make weapons and decided to stop shipping it.

      Then in 2007 the “decider” decided to start shipping again.

      In 2008 Bush personally declared that North Korea is no longer a state sponsor of terrorism or an enemy of the United States.

      Your God, the “decider” Bush:
      - had NK’s nuclear reactor come on line and start making weapons grade plutonium during his watch
      - called NK “axis of evil” then turned right around and sold them fuel oil that powers the reactor (good red meat for the rightwingers though)
      - oops…pulls it back and says no fuel you’re making weapons
      - oh, now you’re not making weapons we’ll sell you fuel again.

      Bush essentially surrendered to NK in 2008…but somehow in a partisan’s hatefull mind that means “Bush was tough and Obama’s a pansy”.

      Oh well – I guess some live in a world where what actually happened in the past magically transforms into something 100% different in the present.

    26. ANewGirl on June 19th, 2009 7:08 pm

      #24—I don’t write the articles, but I’m free to comment as I want.

      I also don’t drink the extreme leftist moonbat liberal bleeding heart Kool Aide which you seem to enjoy. To each his own, Brother & you’re still a Tool.


    27. Two Thumbs on June 19th, 2009 7:23 pm

      Fact is that the economy would still be in a huge mess whether we had GWB or the Dems (Al Gore) in power the last 8 years.

      The mess was caused up by fat cat bankers and Greenspan spending too many years in cheerleader’s tights.

      However, without GWB we might be in a few less wars, have a lot less enemies and a lot more time before getting outsourced by Indians.

      Troll? Des clouse!

      Merely responding to ANewGirl that felt the need to call a poster a Jackass, Clueless, a Tool and an Idiot for merely stating an opinion.

      And for a site that is so steeped in traditonal values, its really not cool to see religious pot shots taken at the President.

      ANEwGirl, do you have issues?

    28. BUN on June 20th, 2009 7:03 am

      #27 I think ANewGirl does have issues and they appear to be freedom of speech and justice and calling a troll a troll!!

    29. ANewGirl on June 21st, 2009 7:14 pm

      #27-Jack—You didn’t answer my question. What do you think that President Obama is going to do to protect us from Terrorisim as it exists today?

      What kind of ACTION do you think he will or should take against the threats from North Korea now? What message has he sent to date? Oh, I will answer that to you—NONE.

      Answer the questions and forget about the names…I really want to know what you think he and blowhard Joe will propose to keep our Nation safe? I wasn’t a huge fan of GWB, but I have to tell you—-although he may have made his share of mistakes in his administration—there is one VERY IMPORTANT FACT you keep ignoring.

      He kept America safe post 9/11. That is something that many take for granted every day. My family will always be grateful to President Bush and all the troops who are still to this day fighting for our Freedom and Safety every day. Seems to me, it’s people like you that sit around and bitch and whine and complain about Bush’s 8 years….GET OVER IT and END THE BLAME GAME.

      President Obama is responsible NOW and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that bad things are happening on the horizon. These situations have been long brewing and I am not blaming President Obama for any of it (it’s been going on for years and years and will continue to happen) but once again I want to ask you the question:


    30. Dolf on June 22nd, 2009 3:36 am

      think the South Koreans have a say in what the US does with North Korea

      afterall Seoel is within shelling distance of about 30% of North Korean arty

    31. Rusty Bridges on June 22nd, 2009 10:05 am

      #25, so you proved Bush did something, thanks! When they where bad he took their oil, when they promised to be nice he let them back in our good grace. Then when they lied he took the oil away again.

      What has your man done?

    32. Dolf on June 23rd, 2009 5:23 am

      nice Rusty

      and you still wonder how the rest of the World got the feeling that the days of freedom, liberty, laws were gone and its all about the money

    33. Chamilia on February 16th, 2010 1:11 pm

      im going to have to agree. as time goes on i feel people will long for bush back.
